he is leaving it up to the two leaders in the u.s. senate try to reach a compromise. something perhaps along the line of what is being negotiated between the speaker and the president a couple of weeks ago. perhaps a tax increase for amounts of more than $400,000 or $500,000 per year. also, senate leaders want to include something on the estate tax, according to a white house official. we'll can also be key to this is that the white house officials are also telling fox news and ed henry that it appears as though the debt ceiling is not part of that. this is a huge nonstarter for republicans in the house. they want any dollar and increase of the debt ceiling to also involve a dollar in cuts over 10 years. if they don't have those corresponding cuts, it is unlikely that many of them will vote for an increase in the debt ceiling. removing them from the equation helps pave the way, at least for what will really be described as a stopgap proposal, one to avoid the full impact of the fiscal cliff. it will allow congress to again take another crack at finding some way to deal with spe

in is giving help to our economy, and that requires printing of u.s. dollars and lots of them as the fed has been doing. i thhnk one of the small reasons why you're paying more for gas today than you did last year at this time is basically because our dollar is buying us slightly less now than it did then. however, there is another side of this and we have a technical picture that absolutely shows us that gasoline is in a downward parallel channel and certainly would go lower as time passes and we're now looking at the 200-day moving average for the crude oil market which is getting below that. melissa: it is moving down, no question. >> absolutely. melissa: i have one reason for that. i was looking at stats, consumption is expected to be 8.73 million barrels a day. that is the lowest level since 2001. why do you think our gasoline consumption is so low right now? >> you know, there is a lot of conservationism going on. there are a lot of cars now that are not using nearly as much gas as they used to. melissa: no, that is not it. come on. >> there is lot of things that come together here. me
